Jack Wilshere: Closing on return for Arsenal

Jack Wilshere is on course to make his comeback for Arsenal in time for Christmas, according to reports.

The 23-year-old midfielder has not kicked a ball this season after suffering a hairline fracture of his leg in pre-season, but the Sunday Mirror claims the England man is closing in on a return to action

His recovery has gone according to plan and Arsenal are confident he will be back to fitness for the matches at Southampton on Boxing Day, the home game with Bournemouth two days later and Newcastle at The Emirates on January 2.

And that will come as a huge shot in the arm to boss Arsene Wenger, who is without Theo Walcott, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Hector Bellerin and Danny Welbeck as well as Wilshere.

Wilshere, who last month described his latest injury as a “freak incident” in training, has admitted he “might have to calm down a bit in training” in a bid to stay injury free.

The one-club Wilshere has won 28 England caps and Spain great Xavi claimed he would be one of the world’s best if he could stay clear of injuries.

    This is good news. Every time he comes back he looks a better, more mature player. He just needs a bit of luck where injuries are concerned.



    he does indeed but also you now have to start questioning how much “luck” has to do with it?

    Fingers crossed though its a crying shame whn such talent is destroyed thorugh injury, happened to many players over the years

    we will all wonder what could have been had Diaby stayed fit, good as Viera? Better? who knows!



    Good news. However, I want Wenger and Wilshere to be very patient. For starters, Wilshere isnt part of our best 11 at present. I think it would be beneficial if Wilshere takes it easy both in his recovery, and on the field. At times he can be too rash. I felt he tried too hard in his last come back in order to make up for lost time, and make an impression, as I think watching Ramsey surpass him had an effect on him.

    He needs to pass the ball earlier, and not hold it too long, and he needs to stop trying to make unnecessary tackles. Those two issues are my biggest worry with Wilshere. Holding the ball and wanting to do more than he should (trying too hard), and sliding in at every opportunity. There were times when he would glide past his man, and rather than make the obvious pass, he would keep hold of the ball and try to do something spectacular.

    So if Jack is going to fit back in, he is going to have to smarted up, because Ozil and Cazorla are making all the right decisions with their passing. Ozil in particular is playing like a dream. So if Wilshere comes in and wants to play his own game, then he needs to be hauled off. We all want Wilshere to do well. However he needs to understand his role in the team is not what it used to be. He needs to understand he needs to play for at least 12 months injury free before he can stake a claim as a senior player.



    The nature of his style of play being low gravity is always going to be a problem for Jack as already seen by the battering his ankles have taken.I hope I am wrong but I feel he will always be injury prone and this will interupt his career.
